Matrimonial & Family Disputes

Our experienced Matrimonial and Family Law team is highly regarded and has represented clients throughout Britain and in other parts of the world.

The breakdown of a relationship is always traumatic and we offer firm, pragmatic and balanced advice and pride ourselves on being understanding and approachable.

All our family lawyers are members of the national body Resolution which has its own code of practice that promotes a non-confrontational, conciliatory approach to family problems.  We seek to resolve matters constructively and cost effectively and we find the vast majority of matters are resolved to the benefit of our clients. If, however, settlement is not possible, we will vigorously protect our clients' interests through the courts.

Our clients include married couples, civil partnered couples, children and unmarried couples and we provide a tailored approach for every client. We can also advise those starting new relationships on cohabitation and prenuptial agreements. We draw on the experience of specialists in other departments who often provide advice on property, tax, and business issues. Our clients can therefore rest assured that they are receiving the full service which they require.
